Spring Feverrrrrr

As far as Tuesday’s go, yesterday wasn’t really all that bad.  For one, it was the first day of my work week (woopsiesnokeysgotlockedout), and two it was absolutely gorgeous outside.  Nothing made me happier than getting in my car and seeing this:

It’s actually only 4:23, but I never figured out how to change the clock in my new car, and well we’re so close to having to change them again now so why bother.  Then I did something I haven’t done in probably a good 5 months, this:

Hellllllllllloooo open sunroof!  Oh it was glorious, tanning and beach weather is just around the corner.  Ok, well maybe not quite but it did feel amazing to walk out of work carrying my coat and scarf instead of huddled down in them.  I wanted to take full advantage of the nice weather, I think it’s supposed to rain the rest of the week, so I got ready for a lovely run outside.  As I was putting on all my gear, iPod, heart rate monitor, Garmin, and knee brace I realized I looked absolutely ridiculous.  I think “army babe” was how to bf described me.  No, I am not going out to navigate through jungles and deserts, just my neighborhood.

That’s my new IT Compression Band.  I liked it, it definitely did it’s job in keeping everything from rubbing together uncomfortably.  It was weird when I first put it on, I felt like my leg was part rubber band and something was making it spring forward, but I got used to it.  Here are yesterdays stats, not very impressive, but something.

2.22 miles
Avg Pace: 9:05
Avg HR: 152
Max Pace: 5:36
Max HR: 176
Cals: 242

After that run, I threw the rest of my workout gear in the car and drove over to the gym to get in some cardio on the elliptical, and then do some abs and weights.  My feet fell asleep 10 minutes into my elliptical workout, and I was so bored and not feeling like I was getting a workout at all.  So, I moved over to a treadmill.  I ran one more mile at 8:49 pace and then called it quits on cardio for the day.

Dinner was a combination of things ya’ll have seen on here before.  Leftover TJ’s Mac and Cheese from Monday night, and Fiber One Chicken Tenders.   They’re just so good and easy to make!  For dessert I had some of the TJ’s peanut butter filled pretzels, no picture because I made them disappear.  They might be the first thing involving peanut butter that I’ve eaten and enjoyed in years.  I know, I know, how can I not like peanut butter.  I’m working on it, don’t excommunicate me.

Tuesday nights revolve around LOST in my world, as you might have noticed, and last nights episode revolved around Ben.  Not really my favorite episode by any means, but still pretty good.  And we learned that Charles Widmore and his ridiculously fake looking sub are almost at the island, and also that Jack and Richard cannot blow themselves up.  I think I have to go watch again.

Alright everyone, Happy Hump Day!  Oh, wait!  One last thing.  Is Lindsay Lohan serious with her e-Trade lawsuit.  Girl, you are not the only Lindsay out there, in fact you’re not even the 3rd one I think of when I hear the name Lindsay.  Ok, now I’m done.
